The exceptional work created at the hand of Mother Nature is the clear inspiration for Love Valerie Create founder Valerie Istre who ventures beyond the rock to make one-of-a-kind pieces that accentuate the beauty of hand-selected raw, natural stones. The company originally launched in the summer of 2014 with a vision of creating unique pieces that bring you joy. The inspiring line of swoon-worthy home accessories, which was followed by jewelry, clutches and children’s accessories is now focusing on home accessories and game day clutches.
The newly reinvented Valerie Istre collection reflects a sense of relaxed and timeless elegance. Emphasizing the inherently unique features of each stone – from agates to quartz, amethyst to citrine, geodes to druzies – she makes rocks into true rock stars.
Valerie can not remember a time in which design and fashion wasn’t a part of her life. Originally from Oklahoma, has always had a creative eye, pursuing her passion with a fashion merchandising degree and working the industry for more than 20 years.
Crafting each of Valerie Istre's pieces by hand is an organic, near-therapeutic process for her: and its deep connection that only enhances the magnetic quality of each of the unique one of kind designs.
